The common format for Telltale games is that the game is released in episodes. You can either buy the episodes individually or acquire a "season pass", which will grant all the episodes as they are released.
I have a good number of Telltale games on the Xbox 360, having played all episodes for certain games over the years.
I now have an Xbox One, and noticed that game discs are being released for most of these games. There is even a Minecraft Story Mode copy available despite the last episode not yet being released.
If I buy the physical disc on a platform (e.g. Xbox One), do I need to redeem a code to download the episodes?
If I buy a new copy, can I sell it on to a new owner so that they can play all the episodes?
Can I buy a cheaper, second hand copy and still play all the episodes?
I know there are a number of Telltale games, but I am interested in:
- Walking Dead Season Two
- The Wolf Among Us
- The Game of Thrones
- Tales from Borderlands
- Minecraft Story Mode
The only thing I have managed to find out is that the physical discs have sometimes been released before all episodes had been released, therefore some of these physical discs can not possibly contain all of the episodes without some form of download. I know this is the case for The Game of Thrones, as well as Minecraft Story Mode.
Please note, I am not referring to the additional 3 episodes (6-8) for the Minecraft Story Mode. It appears that you need to buy these episodes separately (or via an additional season pass that is effectively a bundle of the 3 episodes).
